    I like the Pinside community a lot and there are a lot of fantastic people here, but there is a small handful of people that seem over the top in terms of being a shill/hater, rude, or extra passive aggressive in their tone. As a result, I'm up to 3 people I have placed on ignore and I'm glad the functionality exists as I'm here to have fun and if I'm reading comments by a certain person that consistently bother me, perhaps it's best to automatically bypass them. I'm just curious if many other people have used it and how many times. Obviously, if you have me on ignore, you won't see this post

    #2 1 year ago

    This is now a verboten topic. Sorry!

    #3 1 year ago

    Go to pinside jail.

    Do not pass GO.

    Do not collect $200.

    This topic is fine as long as folks don't name names and just stick to numbers and/or how they use the feature of the site.

    What if I say the people I ignored were really annoying trolls who followed me from thread to thread being dicks?

    Then that's just your reason for using the ignore feature.

    I put every moderator on ignore

    It unfortunately did not stop me from getting moderation notices like I thought it would...

    Great! There are a bunch of idiots I should probably ignore, but then there would not be as much humor in the day.

    those sneaky moderators are unignorable

    #11 1 year ago

    None. I have been driven once or twice to block only the craziest of people.

    Although "lol" is badly overused, that made me actually lol.

    #13 1 year ago

    And to answer the original question, I have never used the ignore feature.

    I guess I just have thicker skin than some around here.

    #14 1 year ago

    Very few. Only blocked a couple who personally attacked me. Everyone else I can adult enough to chose not to respond to

    I ignored 2 people here, but only cuz they were extraordinarily rude and opinionated on RGP. Didn’t and wouldn’t deal with them on Pinside. Been happy ever since.

    Don't be a snowflake.

    #17 1 year ago

    I’m starting to use it more. It’s never personal just keeps some of the constant riff raff at bay. Also when I saw I could have their posts not show up at all, that helped too.

    It was starting to really annoy me, so best for me to just delete those posts. Again nothing personal, just helps me enjoy the site more.

    #18 1 year ago

    I had one for a while then unignored them and now they are one of my favorite posters.

    Make that THREE on ignore!

    Trust me, it was an epic choice based on their popularity here. Same shit, different audience.

    #21 1 year ago

    none. my luck is i would be trying to find a fix for a game and i would wind up ignoring the person with the answer to the problem

    Feeling the love in this thread gang!!!!

    #25 1 year ago

    None

    #26 1 year ago

    None. I like reality in my life and that includes seeing and hearing it all..........Even the things I don’t always like. Sometimes it’s the people you hate the most that make you think the most.

    #27 1 year ago

    Maybe if I knew anything about pinball. I would get into heated debates...and then 30k ignores!

    #28 1 year ago

    How did you know?

    Wow. This entire thread is blank but keeps getting bumped somehow.

    Quoted from Mr68:

    I'm seeing your post though

    #31 1 year ago

    Two. And it's not them being offensive, it's them just saying the same thing over and over and over again. Both are "well respected" members of Pinside too which is kind of funny to me.

    #32 1 year ago

    If you put someone on ignore, how else will you keep track of all the stupid shit they say?

    #34 1 year ago

    Never.

    #35 1 year ago

    I put myself on ignore, but somehow it is not working...

    #36 1 year ago

    I had fun with this post and enjoyed reading the comments; thanks for taking the poll and making me laugh along the way.

    #37 1 year ago

    I try to be tolerant and respect opposing viewpoints.
    Some folks are just so hateful and rude, most are helpful and hilarious.
    The ignore feature is a beautiful thing.

    On the flipside, I've seen quite a few members brag about who they put on ignore. What wonderful people they are!

    #39 1 year ago

    The only ones I have on ignore are the ones who just make a pop up account and list machines for sale that you can clearly see are a scam using someone else photos of the machine or of course the poor written description etc etc.... I only do that just in-case a mod misses that account as a spammer and I'm sure not to deal with them, ever.

    Once had you on ignore over your Wiggler comment. That was a long time ago. No one on ignore. O-Din's opinions keep it interesting.

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    What did I say about the Wiggler, besides it's unobtanionomousness? I quit looking for that one a long time ago after many disappointments.

    #42 1 year ago

    It was number one on the list and I felt it shouldn't. You felt different. Long time ago. Appreciate Wiggler more since researching it. Zipper flipper game.

    Ah, I see. But one must understand pinside is home to flavors of the week. I'm sure there are those that are equally upset that Williams now holds the three EM 100 top spots as well.

    (Disclaimer- I own none of them)

    #44 1 year ago

    To be frank, I only have one entity on ignore, from when it showed up here as RGP faded.

    Happy to say, I have no idea if it is still around.

    #45 1 year ago

    I dont even have my two stalkers on ignore

    #46 1 year ago
    Quoted from PopBumperPete:

    The ones you know about? Most of the people in the weekly meetings are pretty sure they go un-noticed. But we have not counted all survey replies from the ones who get the newsletter.

    Oh wait, wrong guy.

    5. 3 left, either they were banished or got sick of themselves. The other 2 got tired of getting kicked out of threads and are a shadow of their former obnoxious selves. One of those people is on this thread. No ignores at this time.

    So you admit to being Frank from RGP....

    Go on... ( finger hovering over ignore button)

    #49 1 year ago

    10 ... and it’s probably the only reason I’m still here.

    #50 1 year ago

    20. I should add more in 2018. Need less negativity in my life.
